Frisco will host the 46th annual Run the Rockies Road Race this Saturday, Sept. 17. The half-marathon will start at 8 a.m., and the 10K will start at 8:30 a.m.

The race starts near Copper Mountain, continues through the Tenmile Canyon on the Summit County Recreational Path and ends on Frisco’s Main Street. Other Tenmile recpath users should expect and be cautious of heavy runner traffic through 11:30 a.m.

All runners are asked to park at Copper Mountain’s Far East Lot. Summit Express shuttles will take racers back to their car after they finish the race. Shuttles will continuously run from 9 a.m to noon, with the last shuttle leaving the Frisco Historic Park at noon.

The sold-out event, according to the town’s press release, offers professional timing, stocked aid stations on course, a finisher gift and a post-race party with food, beer and awards.

The race benefits local non-profit Hope Squad, which provides mental health services and resources for children who attend school in Frisco with the mission to reduce youth suicide through education, training and peer intervention.
